“According to our information, the Mancunian club is ready to take the full salary of the OL player and pay a paying loan from an English source.”
“According to the latest news, it is finally Marcel Sabitzer who is on track to replace the Danish international at MU. But by midnight tonight, anything is possible…”

It is to be seen whether United do press for his signing.
